Italy, Here I Come!
I feel a mile away from that post I wrote a week ago where I treated you all to a little rant about turning a quarter of century old. I told you all about my work sitch and pulled silly faces in my bedroom, but now here I am with a new contract back at ASOS (social media is my new jam!) and a rather nice holiday behind me that more than lightened my gloomy outlook.
I didn’t want to plan my Italian trip to Puglia too much as, FYI, intensive pinteresting has been known to cause disappointment later down the line. However once we arrived in the first of our four towns I felt like I had been teleported straight into a Google search. I was living the dream quite literally! Cue hundreds of snapchats (ShinyLulu), of course.
Polignano a Mare is a coastal town not to miss (see it on the map here.) I’ll be showing you later exactly what made me gasp with delight on that first evening, but for now, here’s me swanning around the quiet streets in the old town. I may not have planned my itinerary obsessively but I definitely considered my wardrobe. Anyone else here take Polaroid style flat-lays to remember their outfits?!
In my deepest imagination of course, I saw myself lounging in colourful maxi dresses whilst sipping prosecco on balmy evenings in quaint white-washed towns. This was the #holidaygoal and amazingly, this vision did in fact materialise! The maxi turned out to be a good choice in more ways than one. Long lengths are judged a lot more highly than mini skirts around here, so packing a few brightly coloured options is certainly a good choice in this Catholic region.
My sandals coped well after several days walking and my new denim bucket bag from indie brand Daughter of Jon (stocked in Topshop) helped make my outfits a little more casual whilst holding all those holz essentials. Definitely a good outfit to kick of my Italian adventure! More to come folks!
